It's not everyday you get to shoot at a super remote, super beautiful lake.
So when Steve and Kait set up their engagement photos, we had to make sure we took some shots at their house on the South Shore. It's down a winding dirt road with lots of twists and turns but you know as soon as you get there this place was meant to be used for pictures!
Dog photography is something you need to prepare for
It's not like working with people. They don't really care that you have a camera in your hand and you want them to just chill out for 5 seconds so you can get their photo. They are more interested in zipping around the yard at a thousand miles an hour so you can showcase their innate ability at fetching squeaky toys. I get it though, it's kind of like shooting a wedding, you need to be able to go with the flow.
I couldn't believe the patch of sunset we found
Just as we were about to wrap up the shoot the sun peaked out for just a minute or two. If you have ever been to Queensland Beach, just outside of Hubbards, you know how the sunsets right behind the hill opposite the beach. This has always been a bit tricky to capture because of how high the sun is when it drops below the hill. It's still not quite sunset but this is when the beautiful crimsons and shades of blue come out to play. We were able to seize a few of the sunset shots, it's always awesome when you can make something out of nothing!

What with the two galleries?
We've noticed (so had the rest of the internet world) that more and more people are using mobile devices in place of personal computers and laptops. In fact, almost half of our traffic comes from a mobile device or tablet.
Why you should care:
You should never have to struggle when viewing a website on your device. It's just not supposed to work that way. Of course, we've all been to a website on our mobile's that is just horrendous to view. While we take pride in the usability of our website on any device, we recognize that our current method of displaying blog post photographs is not the greatest on mobile devices. Websites who are slow to implement mobile optimization are going to suffer in traffic. Plus, we want to showcase our work in the best light possible!
